What Matters? with Charmaine McKissock
Mondays at 10am , repeated on Saturday at 2pm
Colne Radio is airing a unique new series called ‘What Matters?’ produced by Charmaine McKissock.
Fostering matters to Eleanor Vanner, who is Director of Eastern Fostering Services, a small agency that she set up to find foster carers for children in Essex and Suffolk. Eleanor is passionate about finding stability for children who have had little in their lives and in this interview she speaks to Charmaine McKissock about her mission.
Colne Radio presents this second conversation between Charmaine McKissock and Wendy Bailey, media consultant, activist, bon vivant and artist. You can listen online to this programme on Colne Radio on Monday 29th June at 10am and repeated Saturday 4th July at 2pm.
This 10 minute programme is part of the ‘What Matters?’ series, which records conversations with Essex folk in order to build a unique picture of our lives in the first half of the 21st century and preserve it for future generations. Each person has chosen to talk about what really matters to him or her: a passion, gripe, memory, person, experience, project, or belief.
